The Hub

The iconic and beloved pop-culture series Jem and the Holo­grams, which orig­i­nally aired in the late 1980s, will join The Hub’s sched­ule week­days begin­ning at 7 p.m. ET on Tues­day, May 31 (with encore per­for­mances through­out each day) and at 10 a.m. ET on Saturdays.

Addi­tion­ally, half-hour ani­mated series Conan: The Adven­turer will make its way on to the Hub’s sum­mer sched­ule. Conan: The Adven­turer will be pre­sented at 7 a.m. ET week­days, begin­ning Tues­day, May 31, with encore pre­sen­ta­tions at 6 a.m. ET on Sundays.

The Hub Tele­vi­sion net­work, a des­ti­na­tion for kids and their fam­i­lies, has acquired two pop­u­lar ani­mated hit series that build on the network’s strat­egy of pro­vid­ing pro­gram­ming that kids and fam­i­lies can enjoy together.

Jem and the Holo­grams ran from 1985–88 in first-run syn­di­ca­tion, and it still boasts a loyal and vocal fan base. It is fre­quently cred­ited with influ­enc­ing fash­ion in the late 1980s and beyond, and launch­ing the careers of female pop-rock stars and music groups.

The series fol­lows Jer­rica Ben­ton, whose dis­cov­ery of Syn­ergy, a pow­er­ful com­puter com­pan­ion, allows her to trans­form from co-owner of Starlight Music into rock star Jem. Team­ing with her sis­ter and best friends who form The Holo­grams, Jem sets out to make their musi­cal dreams come true, even as she bat­tles against the ruth­less Eric Ray­mond and his musi­cal pro­tégés, The Mis­fits. The series was a joint col­lab­o­ra­tion of Has­bro Inc., Mar­vel Pro­duc­tions and Sun­bow Pro­duc­tions, and was acquired from the Has­bro Stu­dios library.

The Conan  series fol­lows the mighty warrior’s quest to undo the spell cast upon his fam­ily by dri­ving his ene­mies back into another dimen­sion, and van­quish­ing their leader, cruel wiz­ard Wrath-Amon. The series orig­i­nally ran from 1992–94, and was pro­duced by Jet­lag Pro­duc­tions and Sun­bow Pro­duc­tions. It was acquired from the Has­bro Stu­dios library.
